What causes cyclic Thrombocytopenia in adult male? What is the treatment for it? What's the prognosis

Could taking tylenol (acetaminophen) or tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 cause a 96.62 non african GFR reading?

Could taking tylenol (acetaminophen) or tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 cause a 96.62 non african GFR reading?

It normal, and no: Many pathologists, nephrologists, and other physicians are strongly critical of the fad for "estimating glomerular filtration rate" from a spot creatinine. The "african" business is because black people are supposedly more muscular than white people, but serum creatinine actually is a reflection of both muscle mass / fitness and kidney function. If your physician isn't concerned, I wouldn't be. ...Read more

Can thrombocytopenia be caused by a cat (some disease from cats)?

Probably not.: Cats are not likely to do this, unless there is a very extreme allergy that triggers a severe autoimmune reaction, and this is real remote. Cats usually spread toxoplasmosis infection as they pass it in their stool, but this is controlled by the immune system. A cause of low platelets can be snake bite like from a pit viper. ...Read more

Can tylenol (acetaminophen) make you gain weight? I've lost since I quit taking it, or was it cause it was making me retain fluids?

No weight gain: Unfortunately, doctors often do not address this when prescribing medicine, despite weight gain being very troubling for the many patients.

Husband with mild cirrhosis was prescribed 1500mg tylenol every day but fifth of vodka every day. Does tylenol cause damage right away or is it ok?

Husband with mild cirrhosis was prescribed 1500mg tylenol every day but fifth of vodka every day. Does tylenol cause damage right away or is it ok?

Avoid vodka instead!: There is no "mild" cirrhosis; all cirrhosis is serious and implies a risk for liver failure and death. Regardless of the cause of the cirrhosis (but if especially if from alcohol), of course he should be avoiding alcohol entirely. Acetaminophen can be liver toxic and is usually avoided in this situation, but is far less dangerous for him than a daily fifth of vodka. Discuss with his doctor. ...Read more

What is the best over-the-counter medicine (tylenol, alieve etc.) for shingle pain that will not cause stach upset?

Tylenol, (acetaminophen) but...: Shingles pain can be extreme. Years ago, david letterman had it so severe that he couldn't do his show for like a month or more. If you have shingles, go to your doctor because there are other medications you can take that will minimize the duration of the outbreak and can reduce the inflammation and "post-herpetic neuralgia" (permanent pain associated with herpes!). ...Read more

Elevated ALT of 68 on routine exam, all other labs are good. Non drinker, only on BP. No Tylenol (acetaminophen). So what could cause this?

Not certain.: There are dozens of problems which could cause an isolated liver test abnormality. Some of these are not even related to the liver. Before I became too concerned, I would recommend that you have a repeat set of liver tests done in approximately three months, to see if it is still elevated. If it is, it needs to be worked up by your primary care doctor or a G.I. doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
